Toyota Forklifts Funzone in the forecourt, where you can try your hand
at Ball Bullseye, get your face painted, meet some players, and get a
pic with Victor and Velda. While you’re there, grab one of the Raiders
‘Try signs’ and make some noise when the Raiders score. Toyota
Forklifts will be picking the loudest, proudest fans from the crowd to
try their hands at trivia. Toyota Forklifts are giving away money-can’t buy VIP Raiders experiences to both of the adult and junior trivia
winners. Toyota Forklifts – green is in our blood.

The money raised will provide financial support to our women’s program, by establishing a NRLW academy and scholarship program, purchasing required equipment and the development of coaching and associate support staff.

Other initiatives the foundation will invest in are the development of a Raiders Academy system in the ACT/regional NSW and to deliver a community based Inclusive Program.
